I choose this apple because it reminded me of my Michigan apple farm I grew up on and the yellow delicious apples my Dad planted with the sweet flavor only a yellow delicious can provide.

This is a type of apple that I do not currently have. I want to see how it will do in my mountain top orchard.

My wife's favorite apple. We stumbled on this variety during a yearly excursion to our "local" apple orchard in Ellijay, GA and she fell in love. I am hoping that it does well on our land.
